Rachel Riley Left Embarrassed After Spelling Out Rude Word On Countdown

Rachel Riley Left Embarrassed After Spelling Out Rude Word On Countdown

Woops.

Not to be all anti-intellectual, but Countdown is so shit.

The only reason any guy under 50 watches it is because of Rachel Riley. Before her, it was Carol Vorderman.

Every now and then, though, something happens which livens the whole affair up in a way that isn't subjective.

Most recently it was a combination of letters that Riley picked out, spelling 'cliteasd'.

Riley kept a straight face and managed to finish the jumble of consonants and vowels without laughing. But it's obvious she's on the precipice of howling.

Still, she came on to Twitter to back up her initial innocence, writing "I was wondering why I'd had so many tweets this afternoon...mystery solved!"

Riley might just be immune to it now. In August last year, she managed to spell out 'slutz' and in April 'erection.'

I guess this is why we have 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown.
